Bella Donna Berrywww.myspace.com/bella_don_berry "Bella Donna Berry is a Manchester based Burlesque Performer. Embracing her 'Blonde Bombshell' and 'Cheesecake' labels Bella endeavours to tick all of the British Burlesque boxes- playing caricatures of herself Bella entices the crowd with a playful ease before engaging, and acknowledging, them in her somewhat theatrical and facetious tales of misfortune. A playful performer who relishes audience involvement, Bella is very excited to be part of the Delicious event."
Nyx Le'Noir www.myspace.com/nyxlenoir "Descending from Arabian aristocracy, and a trained belly dancer, Nyx Le'Noir embodies all things exotic and opulent, to bring you her elegantly choreographed and unique routines. Madame Le’Noir’s enchanting acts must be seen to be believed! Nyx Le'Noir's routines are themed on the mysteriously beautiful, and often debauched stories of Greek mythology. Nyx has a love of all things burlesque, vaudeville and circus oriented. Her influences range from Parisian showgirls, to Salvador Dali and Shakespeare."
Jeu Jeu La Foille www.myspace.com/jeujeulafoille "Having misspent most of her formative years in the company of transvestites, Jeu Jeu now wishes to regain her innocence! She performs with a spoonful of cheekiness, a dash of sensuality, and a large helping of charisma. Please play nicely with her."
Kitty Devine www.myspace.com/rachyrachy123 "I started dancing aged four after watching The Wizard of Oz for the first time and becoming obsessed with Judy Garland! It was this that spawned a lifelong obsession with her and all the old MGM movie stars and musicals. I was trained in tap, ballet and jazz at a dancing school in South Shields. After making my stage debut age eight at The Sunderland Empire I got the performing bug and never looked back! At age 18 I went on to train professionally for 3 years at a performing arts college in Blackpool. It was here that I got a real taste for burlesque after seeing the glitzy show girls perform. For the last 5 years I have been dancing professionally and at the beginning of last year decided it was time to try and break onto the scene. After emailing the gorgeous Vicky Butterfly for her advice she gave me a gig at Proud in Camden and some great tips and advice on how to promote and better my acts."
Elle Amour www.myspace.com/elle.amour "Elle Amour is a classically trained dancer who always wanted to be a Ballerina. However, the allure of feathers, sequins and high heels was too much, so she went travelling around the world as a showgirl. Taking inspiration from old Hollywood glamour and putting her own modern twist on it, Elle is taking the burlesque world by storm and has performed in some of London’s top cabaret venues. Her chocolate brown hair, innocent looks and graceful dance moves will captivate you and leave you wanting more."

Eight years ago Salsa became her passion and has since become a professional dance teacher, teaching Salsa, Bachata, Merengue. She is also an instructor for ZUMBA!
